I love reading my work aloud to students, and I love their thank you notes!
These excerpts are from Jan Pelletier’s third grade class at East End Community School in Portland, Maine. They all began with Dear Mrs. Donovan:
I liked that there are cliff-hangers at the end of each chapter. It’s very lousey that Bailey has lice. Get it? Lousey?—Yours truly, C.
Thank you for reading What’s Bugging Bailey Blecker? I really liked when Mr. Adams keeps acting like he’s a soldier. And I lost my bird once I felt bad like Bailey. And will Bailey lose her lice?—Your friend, H.
You are such an inspiration to me. I love your books because they bring back so much memories. Like when you said that Bailey had lice I thought about when last year some unexpected lice came to our house and when I went to bed I could not sleep because I was thinking that I would get lice. When I grow up I want to be as magnificent as you. —Yours truly, A.
